I took these a few days ago, I was surprised with the way the street lights came out as they were shot with my normal lense and no filter.
Is this normal?



In this shot I only recently noticed the vignetting? if I can call it that...
Would this have been caused by the bright lights?


Thanks for looking

The "star effect" from the street lights can be created by setting your aperture to its lowest (most closed) setting, i.e., f/8 on the FZ20. The effect came out nicely in these photos. Don't know the answer to your question about the vignetting.

yes, the smallish aperture causes those effects. and i am not really noticing the vignetting.

i rather like these shots. they are an interesting perspective and exposed well for a night shot. pretty neat effects really.

Thanks for the comments.
I'm not sure if vignetting is the right word, but another photo I took at the same time had a big yellow ring around the whole picture.

I guess I'll try these shots again and see what effect a lense hood has, if any.

Now that's what the critters see... I like your POV shots however I would not enfacise the ground so much. Prety kool shots.
